All-Ireland Football Semi-Final Matchups & Dates Confirmed

After what seems like an eternity, the Super 8s are finally over. They were exciting at first, but they were a bit a drawn out by the end to be honest.

With both groups now decided, we know who will play who in the semi-finals.

After Dublin overcame Tyrone to book their spot at the top of the group, they will now face Mayo in the semis. That match will take place in Croke Park next Saturday evening August 10th, with throw-in at 5pm.

That defeat meant Tyrone will play Kerry, who booked their place after a win over Meath last night. That game will be in Croke Park on Sunday August 11th, with throw-in at 3.30pm.

The two games will be broadcast live both on RTÉ and Sky Sports.

Kerry vs Tyrone, Croke Park - Throw-in at 3.30pm.

Despite their win over Donegal last night, Mayo will enter the clash with Dublin as big underdogs. However, as we know, you can never write them off.

They have plenty of history with Jim Gavin's side, and are the only team to come close to beating them over the last four years. They will be hoping to provide a stern test once again, although the quick turnaround between games could hurt them.

While they will have an extra day to recover, Dublin rested the vast majority of their first choice XV in Omagh this afternoon. That means they should be fresh heading into next week, whereas Mayo will have no such luxuries after a high intensity meeting with Donegal.

The other match is difficult to call, although Tyrone also rested a number of players in today's game. Despite this, Kerry will enter as slight favourites.
